Patchouli Plants

Pogostemon cablin

The smell of the Patchouli plant is both exotic and familiar. Herb gardening means more than just looks, and we encourage you to plant herb plants we have grown for their aromatic value.

This aromatic herb emits the definitive perfume of the Orient and India in particular. It is widely used in perfumes, oils and soaps and its leaves make an excellent potpourri. Patchouli made a resurgence in the 1960's as a popular oils used by Hippies to condition their skin and hair. Also used as an aphrodisiac, Patchouli is often found in many Aromatherapy products and incenses.

Medically, Patchouli is antibacterial and anti fungal. Used for ages in the Far East, Patchouli was employed to treat nausea, headaches, colds and even venomous snake bites. Patchouli has also been known as a skin toner and to be effective in treating acne and eczema.

The plant's anti fungal properties also render it a natural insecticide and makes a great preventative plant for your garden. Ancient Chinese silk traders used to pack Patchouli leaves within the folds of their silk cargoes to prevent damage from moths. Try using Patchouli in your drawers and attics instead of toxic mothballs!

Patchouli plants are a member of the Lamianceae family, which includes Mints, Lavenders and Oreganos. This fragrant plant makes an excellent houseplant. Keep it in filtered light and do not let it dry out. It is an easy plant to grow, and will reward you with lovely white flowers!

5 of 5 Patchouli June 18, 2019
Reviewer: Julie Francis from Bel Air, MD United States  
So far so good.  Patchouli is growing in a small pot in my windowsill.   When I rub the leaves I can smell the scent.  Can’t wait to harvest and make some oil :)))

5 of 5 Smells like the 70’s! June 3, 2019
Reviewer: Chris Scruggs from Muncy, PA United States  
This plant arrived healthy, and larger than I expected, with flower buds already! The crushed leaves smells exactly like the Patchouli you remember from the 70’s - 80’s. I can’t wait to see how it grows this summer!!

Reviewer: Yays from Hope Mills, NC United States  
I have it in a pot next to my chair on the porch.  It’s thriving and when I brush gently over the leaves its aroma is fantastic.
